Call of Duty Elite will be free when Black Ops II launches this November, but Wii U players won't be able to get their hands on it just yet.

Activision told Kotaku today that Call of Duty's digital network will not be available on Wii U when BLOPS2 launches for PC and consoles next month.

"We are currently evaluating options for Call of Duty Elite to support Nintendo's Wii U game system, however Call of Duty Elite for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will not support this platform when the game launches on November 13th," an Activision representative said in an e-mail to me.


Not a great sign for the Wii U's online capabilities, which Nintendo has not yet discussed much at all.
